and to operate with greater transparency and accountability to the public. [applause] and lastly, our budget keeps faith with those to whom we owe the most. it was ape hamlin con that we must quote, care for him who shall have born the battle. but in indiana, our veterans are hurting, and they need our help believe it or not, post 911 hoosier receipt vans are an unemployment rate higher than the national average. we have to do better. we owe these heroes nothing less. heroes like big tim wysong. he got that nickname on the football team on hagerstown high school in 2006. he decided to join the army. arrived in afghanistan for its first deployment n2009. one night in june, driving through a village their convey came under attract. a rocket propelled grenade, exploded the door, pushing a cooper plait threw, destro*eug tim's left leg. nevertheless, tim wysong was able to hold a 350 pound door in place likely saving the livings of everyone in the vehicle. he has had two dozen surgeries ever since. most recent was a year ago. last fall he got married and did his first fk. big time w
their obligations and following the law and regulations and regulations that are established and lastly, the physical layout has to be revisited. there has to the maximum number of precincts that the location can only hold and to add on with that, you have to be prepared to increase the size of the staff and machines and processes and being able to scale up for the larger locations you might have so i think that is important and one of the areas we need to address, one size doesn't fit all. we don't look at one system for every location. we need to make sure we look at the size of the location as well as management of the precinctss within the location. thank you. >> one thing i would like you to consider in the closing statement is advice that you would give to other jurisdictions that find themselves in a battleground state. earlier today we heard there were ten states that were identified as meeting that criteria. for some like ohio, pennsylvania, cloud ground in many ways that there were some state foot for the first time found themselves under the scrutiny you referred to particula
that will present identity theft and tend hiring of future unthorsed workers and lastly, we establish an improved process for e admitting future workers to serve our work force needs while protecting all workers. other bipartisan senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals. but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there is more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. we believe we have a window of opportunity to act. but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan. by their presence today, my republican colleagues are making a significant statement about the need to fix our broken immigration system. we democrats are equally serious. we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes law. we recognize that in order to pass bipartisan legislation none of us can get everything we want. that's why our framework says we can address the status of people living here
quality assurance. third, poor security. fourth, questionable sustainability. lastly, corruption. let's talk about inadequate planning. we are at risk now of wasting billions of dollars if the agencies charged with implementing new programs and constructing new facility is to not first answer some basic questions. i have been in washington 30 something years. i almost fell off the stage. [laughter] i came from ohio. maybe i keep this midwestern approach to issues, sort of basic simple questions that you would ask if you were buying a house, buying a car, or trying to lecture your daughter on what school to attend. sort of simple questions, logical questions. these questions are not being asked first -- are not being answered, i should say, in afghanistan. questions such as, are these programs and buildings needed? have you asked the afghans if they want them? have you coordinated it with any of the other organizations working for either of the u.s. government or the international community? have we designed them to meet any specific need that the afghans have? and have redesigned them
increased flexibility to create efficiencies and achieve results. lastly, congress should not impose maintenance of effort provisions of states as a condition of receiving federal funding. in other words, it states receive federal cuts, washington should not demand the same level of service without providing the same level of funding. essentially, all of these points can and will be coming down to flexibility and partnership. we need the flexibility to take care of the unique needs of our citizens and the challenges of our states. what we do not need is a one- size-fits-all solution or more unfunded federal mandates passed on to our states. the need to be treated as partners, not underlings. we want to work to implement good public policy. as we told congressional leaders, reducing the deficit by shifting costs to the state is not indicative of the good partnership. whether it is deficit reduction or other pressing national issues, we feel the two principles will guide these relationships with the federal government and the state. the principles are the flexibility and the partnershi
. >> let me just lastly mention, you mentioned darfur in your opening comments. the humantarian crisis was so severe. we still have concerns in the southern and blue nile south sudan still has problems. burma where we had hope in november, there has not been progress made. i hope that you will make these areas where there is -- humanitarian crises a highest priority to try to protect the safety of the people that live in these areas. >> i will. i intend to do that. first of all the president, i think, will continue to -- with an appointment of the special envoy to the sudan, we just had princeton lyman, who's done a great job under tough circumstances. i was there myself during the course of their referendum on the independence. i have met with their president many times. i met not with bashir but people underneath him in the north. and my hope is that we can get the status of the number of components of the c.p.a. that were not fulfilled finally fulfilled. by nile, and others are human tragedy. the bombings are continuing. starvation taking place. displacement. and in some ways darfur
more effect it. and lastly, acted in a manner that were not ashamed of our children watching because they are. i'm taking this principles to heart. and we've already hit the ground running to create better jobs, better schools and more effect of government. a company recently came to montana and said goodbye to look in in a manufacturing city, but they needed a workforce ready for the high-tech betting they do. he's high-paying jobs are exactly the kind we should have here in montana. that's why we with great falls college. the begin training workers to fill these jobs in this company is now moving to the electric city. [applause] i think the program also ensure high schools in great falls can graduate with certificates that would make them attractive candidates for the company as well. so not only is it better job, the better education. at the tulsa to bring to market new government to montana and we do not already as well. tomorrow for the first time ever, montana's check book will be online. [applause] bubble has is a searchable database so anyone in siena or anyone across the wor

would line the desert with directional arrows saying this way to tehran. lastly and i'm running out of time i hope perhaps you'll resist from applauding at the six-minute mark or at least the 60% of you who are sympathetic to our view, drown out the others, is that this is a regime that has threatened to annihilate israel and expressed its intention to do so. we are relying on deterrence because it worked in the cold war. the cold war was different. the target of the united states was a continental nation, israel is a one bomb country. [cheers and applause] i commend you. i will stop here and say there is a radical difference between the soviet -- u.s. relationship. you will not ask jews in israel to rely on deterrence in this kind of situation. thank you very much. >> charles, if it makes you better henry kissinger re did not get away with it either. >> thank you for that introduction. it is a -- introduction it is a pleasure being here. it goes without saying that the world would be better if iran does not become a nuclear arms state. achieving that goal should be our principle pr
